So I just started my first month of birth control ever, and my doctor put me on alesse and gave me a prescription for the next 3 months. I haven't experienced any problems so far as to skin problems, the only thing I've noticed is a little moodiness and weight gain, but I'm already tiny so no biggie. However, when I went to go pick up my prescription I was handed a pack of aviane, which I later learned is apparently the cheaper form of alesse. Upon further research, I found mixed reviews of aviane including crazy mood swings, spotting, facial hair etc. I was wondering whether or not I should just go with the (cheaper) flow and start the aviane, or go the extra mile and pay a little extra for alesse?
